Symbiosis : Directed by Carl Jacks
Presented by the Endangered Creeks Expedition (ECE), "Symbiosis" features exquisite footage from numerous West Kootenay creeks that are being proposed for controversial independent power projects (IPPs). Guided by members of the ECE, a regional collective of concerned kayakers raising awareness over hundreds of private power applications being filed throughout the province of British Columbia, viewers are led down a selection of creeks and canyons special to residents of the West Kootenay region. Since documenting their descents on these and many other creeks, the ECE has followed up with actions to protect navigability in effort to create further complications for any potential run of river hydro project developments.
Currently, the BC Government is poised to transfer ownership rights to hundreds of wild and scenic waterways. This could mean the building of hundreds of independent power projects in watersheds throughout the province, without an adequate review of the environmental or community impacts. This will result in incalculable damage to wild and scenic rivers through road building, habitat destruction, water-diversion and a maze of new power transmission lines.
We here at Dainty Deathy Productions stand firmly behind all of those who are working hard to protect our environment and we will continue to do our very best to promote the efforts of these many individuals.
